I was listening to 9/18 and 9/19/70. Both nights ended with the Youngbloods' "Get Together" on the PA system. It made me wonder who's decision was this. Who picked the PA music?

I saw them some time in the early '80s and they played King Crimson's "Beat" album between sets. This really hit the spot for me because I was really into that at the time. So, who called it?

I seem to remember reading an interview where a band member addressed this question but I'll be damned I I can remember the answer.

Helpful, yes I know.

Uncle Bobo I presume. I remember Greensleeves being played a lot at the end of shows

Yes; this was the case at Winterland all thru the 70s til closing (closed with GSleeves)...we were all confident this was BG's call, as CC notes. Note sure we have independent confirmation--such as that doc flick on him or some such--but everyone I knew in the 70s just "knew" this was the case.

All I got...

Green sleeves was Graham's call as he discussed in his autobiography
He wanted to use the same tune after every show so that people would know the show was over and leave the hall instead of lingering around or calling for more encores
He discusses how he used this to basically clear the hall when the sex pistols went crazy

Thx, NJ; I was sure somehow we had gotten "ind confirmation" one way or another, but then...memory lapse and all, didn't want to come on too strong.
